AWS Glossary
« on: March 29, 2016, 02:49:00 AM »
The manual needs a small extension from a glossary that explains the various acronyms used at the site .. I am not looking for anything copy pasted off the net covering all possible aviation codes but strictly AWS related things, so decided that best way is to include it in the manual.

If someone has free time and nothing else to do, now would be the perfect opportunity help a bit.

Simply work with this simple online notepad and continue that one: https://shrib.com/mBzFlH931c349HQ

Idea is to include game related terms or abbreviations here, but not any forum slang. So explaining Yield might be a good idea but explaining for example "BK" (bankrupt) is not necessary since that short form is not used anywhere in the game interface. = Simply browse through the game pages and see what abbreviations you see, nothing else (airport codes and aircraft models etc excluded of course).

Format is kept simple too (since I will transform this into other formats later): one item per line, first comes the keyword and after that a | separator symbol (for my easier conversion) and then the explanation. Like so: "MTOW|Maximum Takeoff Weight. The highest mass this aircraft is certified to takeoff".

I added a few quick examples there but will continue later.
